difference between c3 nd c4 pathway.?

C3 - Fixes carbon from C02 into a 3 carbon sugar (3-phospoglycerate)

C3 plants require less ATP for carbon fixation. Both proccesses were evolutionary devices to allow plants to live in different environments. 

C4 - Fixes carbon from CO2 into a 4 carbon sugar,

C4 plants live in adverse environments, eg in the desert. 


hope it helps u
